Given the pattern, we should have seen the removal of Everblossom Sleigh, the introduction of Ashen Phoenix Base and Artifacts, and the craftability of Watchful Winter Owl Artifacts.

I think the recent announcement was one round too early.


Edit: Corrected with the missing Aug announcement, and with the current Sep announcement as well. Don't know how I missed the announcement, nor how I failed to count the recent calendar correctly...

It is a bit confusing. I just crafted Golem and Sleigh. I'm not sure about Sleigh but Golem should've been removed from crafting in February.

Okay, what's going on here?

I haven't been paying attention, to whether reality (what's actually happening in the Tower and Spire) has been matching the announcements. But, as you can see above, there has been a pattern to the announcements, which the most recent announcement broke. Sep 25 was announced to be the removal of Ashen Phoenix from the Spire, despite the past announcements never mentioning Ashen Phoenix as having yet been introduced. Now, another thread has a player bemoaning the removal of the Ashen Phoenix.

I do see that Fairy's Retreat Artifacts are indeed being offered as rewards in my current Spire. So, what happened? @anonglitch ? Anyone? Beuler?

Can I request a complete description of what is currently rewardable and craftable? And ongoing, can these announcements be reworded for slightly more clarification of what is actually happening?

Take the current announcement, titled "New Rewards for the Spire of Eternity"

On September 25th, the reward dataset for the Spire of Eternity will be adjusted for the next 6 weeks.

Changes:
  • Ashen Phoenix will be phased out as a possible reward for the Spire of Eternity
  • Queen Fairy's Retreat Artifacts and the craftable building will be phased in instead
  • Everblossom Sleigh Artifacts will also be phased in for crafting

1) This explicitly mentions changes to the Spire, but implicitly also describes changes to the Magic Academy when it mentions crafting.
2) The additions to Crafting (Base in bullet 2, Artifacts in bullet 3) are never explicitly announced as being removed from Crafting.
3) Is it actually correct that there is a 6 week gap between when an Artifact is available in the Spire and when it is available in the MA?

Updated my original post... Best guess, I somehow compressed Aug and Sep into a single month, so didn't see the glaring gap in my chart.

For a chuckle, consider for a moment the typo I almost committed in one of my Boblin's Express Service entries...
